Chapter 13

"Will I see you again this weekend?" 4 asked as she put her shirt back on.


"Maybe. Tomorrow is Victoria's birthday." I sighed.


"Tell her I said 'Happy Birthday.'" She smiled.


"That's not a good idea."


"I know. I just wanted to see what you were going to do." She laughed. That's not funny. "So when will I see you then?"


"I don't know. Don't worry about it. I'll surprise you." I kissed her cheek and headed to the car.


"Alrighty. Text me later!" She called after me. I got in my car and drove off. 4 is so great when she follows directions. As I drove, I got a call from Victoria.


"Hey gorgeous." I answered.


"Michael, I need you to pick me up." She sighed into the phone.


"Where are you?"


"Taylor's."


"I'm on my way."


"Thank you."


"What happened?"


She sighed, "I miss you."


"Baby, it's only been a couple of hours."


"Yes, I realize this. I just want to be with you. Is that too much to ask for?"


"Not at all."


"Thank you." She said and hung up. There has to be another reason as to why she wants to be with me right now.

"Hey, Michael." Victoria ran out and hugged me tight.


"Hey. What's going on?" I asked. Victoria made a face. "What?"


"You stink." She said as she got in the car.


"I worked out." That wasn't a lie. I did work out. Sex is great exercise.


"Good for you." She said and took out her phone.


"I thought you missed me."


"I did."


"What are you getting your phone out for?"


"Jeez, Michael. I have a call to make." She made a face at me.


"I'm sorry. I just thought you were the same person who said no phones today. Don't you still want to go to the movies or paddleboat? I was looking forward to that."


"Shh! Hey, Joshua." V smiled. Joshua? "My day is going great actually. Are you busy tomorrow?"


"Babe, tomorrow is your birthday."


"Shh! You're not? That's great." Oh, hell no. I know she isn't about to have this punk tag along.


"Well tomorrow is my birthday and Michael reserved Dave and Busters." Shit. I forgot all about that. I have to do that tonight. "Yeah...I was wondering if you'd like to come along with us." V gave me a look. Fuck. "Perfect! Michael, what time?" I kept my eyes on the road. She's doing this on purpose. "Michael?"


"Eight."


"Eight... Alrighty. See you then!" V smiled and put her phone away.


"Why is he tagging along?" I blurted out.


"He's my best friend. It's my birthday."


"Can't the two of you celebrate together some other time?"


"No. I don't want you to think I'm cheating on you." Like I've done to you countless times?


"Oh."


"See? That's smart, isn't it?" Does that make me dumb because I choose not to bring my girls around you? "Michael, do you want Joshua to come?"


"It's a little bit too late for that now. Don't you think?"


"Not in the slightest bit."


"He can come." I sighed.


"Are you serious?"


"You already made the call, V. I'm pretty sure my opinion doesn't count now."


"Of course it does. I'll even let you invite a friend. You can invite Kendra."


"We're not friends. That wouldn't be a good idea anyway."


"Why not?"


"It just won't, V."


"Tell me why." This girl is trying to get something out of me.


"Victoria, I'm tired and I have a headache. Can we stop talking about this?"


"Sure." She turned around. I think she knows. Yup. She knows. Especially since she hugged me and I smell like pussy.


~ ~ ~


"Can you just be quiet about it?" I asked Victoria in the calmest way possible.


"No. I want to know why you won't let me see your phone." She's been arguing with me about this since we stepped foot in the house.


"Why do you want to see it?"


"I'm suspicious. I want to know if my suspicious are true."


"What are you suspicious of?"


"You cheating on me."


"So I'm cheating on you because I won't let you see my phone?"


"Exactly."


"That's stupid. I'm out of here." I stormed out and started my car. Fuck this. I'm going to see 1.
